English Poetry

This poem got written as an automatic offshoot after reading the beautiful poem and the account in Praveen’s poem “”May I go to the toilet?”…..

Railways, toilet & Mirror ….!

Long back he and his wife he loved
Were enjoying their first train travel
The compartment was not full but cool
All people seated, enjoying the breeze & lull

The man felt need to visit the toilet
Went to it, opened the door, said sorry & returned
There was some one inside, toilet was occupied
He tried going a few more times thereafter
But to release him couldn’t succeed in any manner

His wife suspected some foul play
She went to the toilet door
Opened slightly to see if anyone was there
Got indeed a bitter shock of her life
Came back and fired the husband left and right
For his craving & bad manners for others’ wives
For she saw a pretty woman in the toilet, smile….

You may have guessed it right
Railways in toilet often provide mirror of a type,
So poor in quality, one’s own self one can’t recognize….
Resulting in such misunderstandings & marital fight.

    मुझे बहुत पहले सुना joke याद आ गया,
    आदमी टोइलेट से लौट कर बोला टोइलेट में koi परिचित ही है जो बड़ी देर से अन्दर है

      @siddha Nath Singh
      कमेन्ट के लिए बहुत शुक्रिया
      जी हाँ, ये बहुत पुराना हिंदी में सुना joke है
      जिसे थोड़ा twist कर रेल के खराब आयनों से जोड़ English में प्रस्तुत करने का प्रयास है
      और इसकी प्रेरणा जैसा कहा प्रवीण जी की रचना “May I go to the toilet ” है, जो आज सवेरे पढी…

    बहुत खूब विश्व जी. इसके आगे की दास्ताँ यह है कि वो टी टी को साथ लेकर जब टोइलेट में दिखाने गया तो टी टी बोला कि टॉयलेट में दो-दो लोग एक साथ क्या कर रहें हैं.

    • Vishvnand says:

      प्रतिक्रिया के लिए हार्दिक शुक्रिया है.
      अब इस सबका असर ऐसा हुआ है की रेल मंत्री और मंत्रालय ने ये निर्णय लिया है की रेल के toilets में से सब Mirrors निकाल दिए जायं और रद्दी में बेच दिए जायं . ऐसा घोटाला भी नहीं होगा, toilet का इस्तेमाल होगा और पैसे भी बचेंगे… 🙂

      Thank you so very much for your comment. I have felt very happy.
      Your poem cited reminded me of this joke heard years back and also triggered the idea for the twist incorporated in the poem at the end..
